A day after hundreds of passengers escaped after an Emirates flight skidded on a runway and burst into flames Wednesday at Dubai International Airport, a video footage of the moments inside the plane just before the incident has gone viral on social media.
The video shows the passengers reaching for their luggage before they jump out of the plane. Moments later, the plane would be wrecked by explosions.
"Laptop, laptop," a passenger can be heard saying in the video.
Meanwhile, a male crew member can be heard shouting at the passengers "leave the bag, jump outside."
The flight had left from Kerala, and most of the passengers were Indians. All the 300 people on board were safely evacuated.
Rehan Quereshi tweeted the footage out. However, no one knows yet who shot the video.

The video reflects the chaos as the plane's crew shouted at passengers to use the emergency chutes to flee.
The aircraft left Trivandrum International Airport at 10:19 a.m. and was scheduled to land at 12:50 p.m. in Dubai.
